Apple obviously waits to release their SIM-free versions of their phones for a bit to encourage people to …

How to Stop Incoming Calls from Taking Up The Entire Screen on Your iPhone (Video) (JB Tweak)

Oh, people that still call other people… Don’t you know by now that no one calls anyone? Text me, email me, even ping me on Twitter, but actually dial me? Hold the phone. The only time I should ever get a phone call, is if whatever it is that needs to be said, is seriously time sensitive –as in if you don’t know right this minute, it’s going to mess something up. Maybe you’re coming up to the exit on the freeway you think you’re supposed to turn and need to confirm before you pass it? Fine. You’re standing in line to buy …

How to Get a Full Fledged File Manager on Your iPhone (JB Tweak)

This week I have another jailbreak tweak I thought was fun, and it may be old, but it was just recently made to work with the latest version of iOS and it’s a good one so figured it was worth rehashing. iFile is a jailbreak tweak that allows you to do something unheard of on an iPhone –look at your own files. Crazy, I know, but Apple has never allowed iPhone users to look at the files on their phones (even though it’s okay on a Mac?). Not sure the reasoning behind it, but regardless (thanks to iFile) you don’t have to …

Multitasking

How To Enable Split Screen Multitasking in the Reachability View on Your iPhone (JB Tweak)

Our jailbreak tweak this week is one made especially for iPhone’s of the larger screen variety –namely the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. Reason being that it’s meant to make better use of the reachability feature found on these versions of the iPhone. Reachability, if you aren’t aware, is a feature Apple added to the newer iPhones to allow you to be able to still reach the top of the phone’s screen if you only have one hand free. You just double-tap (without clicking, by the way) on the home button to get the entire view in the screen to slide …

CCSettings

How to Add More Options to The Control Center on Your iPhone (JB Tweak)

The control center on your iPhone is that semi-transparent shade that you can pull up from the bottom of your screen. Introduced in iOS 7, it’s a handy little thing if we’re honest. You can use it to control your current music player without having to open the actual app, use it to turn on the back light to find your keys, and use it to toggle on and off things like Wi-Fi, auto-rotate, do not disturb, and more. But, let’s be real, there’s always room for improvement and thanks to a jailbreak tweak called CCSettings, that improvement comes in …

Swirling, cubing, fading, any animation you can think of can now be applied to your homescreens on your iPhone thanks to a jailbreak tweak called Barrel.

Admit it, we all become impatient when someone’s typing a message to us. Maybe it’s a message from someone you love or maybe it’s just someone you need a quick response from so you can finish making plans for the day. Either way, being impatient is obvious.

How to Change How Siri Pronounces Words on Your iPhone

If you’re like me, constantly texting into your phone simply doesn’t cut it. It wastes valuable time, and, let’s be honest, I feel like I’m already getting arthritis in my thumbs from all that unnecessary movement. I want hands-free answers about the weather, traffic, or nearest pawn shop while cooking or walking my dog. That’s not too much to ask, is it? Enter Siri, the Answer Queen of technology. Siri’s pretty smart. She even cracks jokes from time to time. She has class, sass, and, when competing with other digital assistants like Google Now, Cortana, and Alexa, she’s the best …

You can actually get free WiFi tethering on your iPhone by installing a clever inexpensive jailbreak tweak from the Cydia store and never have to pay those ridiculous monthly tethering fees again.

How to Replace the Screen on an iPhone 5 (Complete Video Guide)

Thanks to my girlfriend dropping her phone on the sidewalk and shattering the screen, I’m going to do a video on how to fix a broken iPhone 5 screen (thanks Christy!). I’ve seen a few of these videos online but noticed a bit of a gap in the information that I’d like to address in my tutorial; they’re incomplete. Let me explain. There are two different types of replacement screens for the iPhone 5, one that has all of the parts that are normally attached to the screen included (earpiece, home button, etc.), and one that, simply put, doesn’t. I HIGHLY …
